What do we do?


iQ-AutoLifeTM provides the tools that makes it possible for drivers to enjoy connectivity in safer manner than what is offered by Automotive OEM, Telecom and Telematics service and hardware providers.  The system provides anxiety free interface with guaranteed Eyes On The Road and Hands On The Wheel to eliminate driver distraction due to manual texting, cell phone calls, e-mailing and browsing.

Our technologies are Patented and Patent pending in the U.S. and EU. They are the results of more than two decades of Real World Observation (others call it Naturalistic Driving).  Before you get excited, we assure you that cell phone calls, e-mailing and browsing are not carried out in the usual way but in a manner that guarantees Connectivity with Eyes On The Road and Hands On The WheelTM.
The difference between our technology and the "Ad hoc" way drivers access these connectivity means, is that we structure the experience to assure Convenience and a Common Sense approach that will avoid the known causes of in-vehicle or nomadic technologies.

The difference between our technology and the way automotive is that we are not aiming for providing the devices and services, but we aim to make the devices, the services, the drivers, the car to work together seamlessly to provide moderated connectivity and driving under strict safety rules extracted from real world historical facts.

Our Technologies will sense a danger and stop phones before the interrupt the driver. It can also guarantee that the drivers hands are on the wheel and not doing anything else while talking on the phone or when listening to e-mail. There is nothing like what we offer out there and expert that looked at our prototypes proclaimed it as meet or exceed existing "guide lines" from multiple regulatory and authoritative sources. Certification will be published once completed.

Our Offering is geared toward the most effected groups in the driver distraction problem. Starting with the individual driver up to the largest Commercial and Governmental fleets.

We are working on our mass production design that will be available in the fall of 2012.  Purchase of an aftermarket solution is available by contacting or pre-order through our Online store.

iQ-GatewayTM:     This is the "heart and brain" of the system.  No one else have anything like it.  Unlike some features on modern vehicles, this is not just a USB connectivity for your phone and MP3 player. a user will dock his portable devices into this smart cradle to be powered and controlled*. 



The Gateway is connected to the vehicle network to read what's happening with the car and the information to implicitly determine the busy and stress  state of the driver.  The Gateway then issue control commands** to equipment, services and devices activating, enabling, disabling or suspending them to  decrease the driver distress and possible distraction or to address drivers' need for help.


The Gateway also uses the phone data account, or a dedicated communication account to interface with iQ-HUBTM. It will retrieve a summary of the latest e-mails, news, weather and traffic to audibly read to the driver as per his selection in iQ-HUBTM.


iQ-GatewayTM is not equipped with a display. All information is given to the driver verbally so drivers eyes never leave the road.

HOWITM is used to drive an audible menu, so the driver does not have to look at a screen.


HOWITM can detect the presence of one or both hands at the 10:02 and 9:15 and consequently can be configured to require at least one hand at that location to avoid a suspending telematics or hearing an alarm.  This feature can be targeted toward hazardous material haulers and at risk drivers.


  1. HUSTM is the acronym for Head UP SpeakerTM.  The speaker is positioned and designed to deliver sound from a unidirectional source from the forward looking-head up-eye level position.  This help drivers avoid the Zone out/Tunnel vision effect associated with the Earpiece, Hand held phones and sounds pumped from the car speakers

iQ-AWARETM: iQ-AwareTM manages environmental warnings.  it has two distinct features.  iQ-AwareTM requires built in or additional sensors that require professional installation.  The system data is included in any data uploaded to iQ-HUB TM

Awareness notification to the driver when detecting a danger is emerging in the driving environment, e.g. driving too close to other cars, vehicle in blind spot, too close to front and rear vehicle and emerging threat from rear or in front of vehicle.  It uses visual and audible hints based on detected driver intention as implied by additional factors.

Straight Ahead VectorTM uses navigation information to plot a terrain course ahead of the vehicle adding any data form wireless sources, and then delivers information to the driver about the upcoming location, e.g. school bus, school zone, construction , change in road grade or a steep curve.  The module will compare driver compliance with the vector ahead and then issue a reminder to the driver of the imminent danger or deploy / actuate devices to mitigate dangers.

This feature requires at least iQ-RANGERTM and vehicle proximity sensors from Third Party Suppliers.  Both are sold separately.
